Top Weekend Events 09/09-09/11

Well, it’s Thursday.  I totally blew is and forgot about Labor Day and my week’s been all messed up.  So, your Wednesday Top Weekend Events post is coming to you one day late.  Happy Thursday!

The top weekend event is the US Open Tennis – Session 24 which is the Men’s Semifinals.  The US Open has been plagued by rainy conditions.  Top players Andy Roddick, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray were infuriated with the United States Tennis Association for starting their matches in a light mist yesterday.  Their matches were halted after a mere 15 minutes.  The players stated that they didn’t feel “protected” and that the Association was solely after money.  The four players are rescheduled to play today, weather permitting, and whoever comes over the victor will go on to play this weekend in the Quarterfinals tomorrow and semifinals on Saturday and Sunday.

Of course, not to be out shown, NCAA Football is large and in charge on the top weekend list.  The top game this weekend is Penn State vs. Alabama, which kind of seems like an odd pairing; a Big-Ten team versus an SEC Team.  Alabama is ranked #3 and Penn State at #23.  If Penn State upsets the Crimson Tide, it would be a momentous occasion. 

The Notre Dame vs. Michigan game should be of no surprise to draw huge interest.  Both teams draw huge crowds on their own, but since it’s drivable distance between the two, the interest is even greater. Even more so, this game will be played under the lights of Michigan Stadium and both teams will be wearing retro uniforms.

For your concert news and events, Grace Potter will take the stage this Sunday in Nashville.  Her celebrity has really increased a lot after her discovery by Kenny Chesney on You Tube.  That’s not the bands only claim to fame, they have written many tracks for One Tree Hill, performed at 2009 Bonnaroo Music Festival and opened for Dave Matthews Band in 2008.  Keep your eye on Grace Potter and the Nocturnals!

In summation, things to keep your eye on in the coming future NCAA Football (obviously), NFL Football, MLS Soccer, and Jason Aldean.

Top Weekend Events August 26 – 28

Happy Hump Day to you!

The trend for this weekend is Country Music!!  In particular interest are the Jason Aldean shows.  I can’t begin to say how many queries I’ve fielded about these two particular shows specifically.  This man’s shows are hot!  Fans are anxious to get their hands on tickets, ideally, lawn seats.

The American Idol shows also have a heavy fan following.  Past season’s winner country music singer, Scotty McCreary, headlines the show. His other top ten performers; Lauren Alaina, Haley Reinhart, James Durbin, Jacob Lusk, Casey Abrams, Stefano Langone, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia.

You should be used to seeing Kenny Chesney, ZBB and Keith Urban on the list by now.  American fans want to soak up the last bits of summer while they are able.  Country music should continue to be popular into early fall.

The Licking River Festival is a weekend of Americana/roots music,  food and drinks out in Kentucky which is big with the camping crowd.  The Festival will feature Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band and 20 other performers.

Two MLS soccer games made the list this weekend.  The Colorado Rapids at the Chicago Fire’s home turf and the Sounders against the Crew.  Interesting point of interest; the Sounder’s majority owner is Hollywood producer Joe Roth, and its minority owners are Adrian Hanauer, Paul Allen and Drew Carey. Keep your eye on other MLS soccer games.  The MLS season goes through October and the games are usually well priced!

Adele Reschedules North American Tour Dates

If you don’t know who Adele is by now, you really should.  She is a British singer with a HUGE following.  Her soulful voice has attracted her a lot of attention both critically and with the masses.  Many huge stars, including Beyoncé, have sited Adele as an inspiration, even at her ripe old age of 23.  Her sound has been compared to a cross between Duffy and Amy Winehouse.  Her popularity is continuing to skyrocket.

Nielsen SoundScan’s senior vice president of analytics Dave Bakula told MTV News. “You’ve got an artist here who wasn’t a household name prior to this record coming out, so you do still have that discovery process going on with her.

“What it really goes to show is the fact that there still are that many people discovering the album every week,” he added. “I think it shows a lot about the latent demand that is out there for great music.”

Her current tour for her second studio album, 21, is going incredibly well.  Many performances had to be added or moved to larger venues to accommodate her adoring fans.  Earlier this month, Adele had to cancel her North American tour due to laryngitis.  She was “devastated” to have to cancel, but she didn’t want to risk permanently injuring herself.  Her tour commences on August 9th in Vancouver.
